India did not enforce the follow-on and opted to add to their lead by taking the chance to bat for the second time.

West Indies 117 & 45-2

[Darren Bravo 18(31), John Campbell 16(26); Shami 1/12, Ishant 1/13]

West Indies need 423 runs



As anticipated, India did not take long to bowl out West Indies, who were already down at 87-7 at the end of day 2. Courtesy of some lower-order resistance from Kemar Roach and Rahkeem Cornwall, West Indies only delayed the inevitable as they were bowled out for 117. 

India did not enforce the follow-on and opted to add to their lead by taking the chance to bat for the second time.

Giving credit where credit is due, West Indies bowlers came hard at India in their second innings as Kemar Roach dismissed each of Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Virat Kohli in quick succession. While Agarwal was trapped in front of the wickets, Rahul and Kohli got absolute peaches on the sixth stump line and both fell in the trap.



Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari, who have been solid in this series, again came to the party as the duo had a 100+ partnership, with both notching up half-centuries. With the lead being 468, India decided to declare and put in West Indies to bat for a tricky period of 13 overs.

Windies lost both openers Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell before the close of play and now trail by 422 runs with two days to go.

West Indies- Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shamarh Brooks, Darren Bravo, Jahmar Hamilton, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Jason Holder, Kemar Roach, Rahkeem Cornwall, Shannon Gabriel
